Two very useful small tools in Windows

There are two small tools in Windows which saved my day multiple times. I didn't bother to write a blog post since I thought that it was not worth it but the two tools got me out of a big problem today (again). To appreciate the two tools I decided to write it down briefly.With any further ado let me introduce them as below. The nice thing is that they are in the box.Takeown.exe  - take owne

App-V 5: On the (now sometimes) Immutable Package Cache Location

When you add/configure and publish a package in App-V, the primary file assets and source registry hives are stored in the package cache location. It defaults to %PROGRAMDATA%\App-V. The package cache will store packages in a <PACKAGE_GUID>\<VERSION_GUID> directory structure for each package added to the machine regardless of targeting. This package cache will exist for the purposes of marking key

To preload or not to preload...

Q:My application starts slowly, I want to preload it to avoid that problem.   Should I be worried?A:Well, in short, there are lots of concerns.  Preloading things you may or may not need is a great way to waste a ton of memory and generally make the system less usable overall.I’m often told that that the answer to a performance problem is to simply preload the slow stuff… unfortunate

On adopting high end perf tools to study micro-architectural phenomena

Huge words of caution: you can bury yourself in this kind of stuff forever and for my money it is rarely the way to go.  It’s helpful to know where you stand on CPI for instance but it’s much more typical to get results by observing that you (e.g.) have a ton of cache misses and therefore should use less memory.  Using less memory is always a good thing.You could do meaningful analysis for a

Windows Azure Storage - 公有云存储独占访问(lease)与数据一致性

上一篇介绍了如何使用签名授权方式(SAS)来实现客户端程序操作Blob Storage,SAS方式较适用于授权临时读操作,如果是多个客户端需要写入或者更新同一个目标blob文件时,SAS授权方式将会带来很大的数据一致性问题。因此,在数据一致性检查以及写操作同步控制中,开发者可以采用Azure Storage中提供的独占锁(Lease)来保证独占访问和数据一致性。当众多客户端访问同一个WAS中的数据时,数据一致性需要慎重处理,最简单的一种处理方式是查看每一个Blob对应的ETag、LastModifiedUtc、ContentMD5等属性。在应用程序代码中,开发者可以通过Azure SDK提供的CloudBlockBlob.Properties.ETag、CloudBlockBlob. Properties. LastModified和blockBlob.Properties.Co

How can I detect that a user's SID has changed and recover their old data?

A customer maintained a database which recorded information per user. The information in the database is keyed by the user's SID. This works out great most of the time, but there are cases in which a user's SID can change. "Wait, I thought SIDs don't change." While it's true that SIDs don't change, it is also true that the SID associated with a user can change. Since SIDs encode the dom
